Video: XC Meets BMX? Dangerholm’s Completely Custom Scott Spark
@Apex06: Just chiming in to point out that BMX for fun and highlight the fun personality of the bike. But if you insist... I'll point out that BMX racing is very much a thing and at the highest level most bikes are carbon-everywhere.

Video: XC Meets BMX? Dangerholm’s Completely Custom Scott Spark
I probably game too much but I read BMXC as Bad Manner XC, which actually makes a lot of sense too! Since you do not really seem to have a budget for those bikes, why not go full exotic swagger and slap and eewing crank? IIRC it's almost the same weight and the eagle crank. The last question, since I keep track of most of your projects on Instagram, are all the bikes you build for you? Or do you have commissions? (e.g show bike from Scott, plastic surgeons etc.. ) If not, is it something you'd be interested in pursuing? You did Lotus themed bikes and MTB is actually super popular among F1 pilots.. maybe they'd be down to pay top dollar for a blinged-out superbike.

10 Exotic or Unconventional Downhill Bikes Spotted in the World Cup Pits
@F22: The Antidote Lifeline. There were actually 2 versions of it. The first one had a front carbon triangle in 13k, with rear bases in CNC'ed aluminum. The second was full (3k weave?) carbon-vectran. There used to be a full Alu version as well. To date, the first carbon version is the biggest wow I ever had on a bike. https://fotos.mtb-news.de/p/1033154

Video: Friday Fails #111
I'm always amazed at the number of people that build kickers on flat ground. Are they so sure to reach orbit that any landing or slope would be unnecessary?

Round 2 Voting Closed: 2019 Pinkbike Photo of the Year Contest
It'd be interesting to have a ranking of people by the number of correct votes. You could even throw in a little something like one year of Pinkbike Plus for the dudes that got everything correct. (Inspiration from the league of legends worlds pick'em, please don't flame me) :)

Jerome Clementz Takes New Role as MTB Coordinator Europe for Cannondale, GT & Fabric
I will add that business opportunities do not wait for when you judge it is time. Maybe he was planning to keep racing for some time but the job opening came up and he thought he wouldn't get it twice ( which I agree on). Anyway, it's good to see a pro managing his post-racer life well.

The 25 Greatest Riders of the Decade
Picking one among 25 riders to be the rider of the decade is impossible. Rachel Atherton would never be able to achieve what PFP did and vice versa. And to be honest, I'm not even sure myself whose achievement is the most impressive. Though, if I was to give the 3 names that are the most likely to stand the test of time, these would be Rachel Atherton, Brandon Semenuk and Danny Macaskill. Does any of them qualify as the rider of the decade? I can't tell; one became an icon through sheer domination, the other redefined its discipline and the third took bikes to an unprecedented audience (and creativity) level.

Final Results: Nations Trophy - EWS Trophy of Nations 2019
Not to brag or anything, but where most people are able to curse a rider I went ahead and cursed a full team.

Race Preview: Zermatterhorn - EWS Zermatt 2019
I've been to Zermatt once, it was the end of Chamonix-Zermatt crossing. Incredible place, and the descent from the Gornergrat to the village is easily in my top3 memories. Technical, steep, not too exposed and stunning views. I'm sure it will be a fitting backdrop for the last EWS of the year.
